Joost just reached a new milestone

August 31, 2021

On August 31st Joost hit a major milestone. Joost currently has more than 10,000 video Programs in its database. Those programs are distributed between 237 Channels.

Joost has come a long way since it opened to beta testers earlier this year. I literally went from less than 1000 to more than 10,000 Programs in less than 6 months. At this rate Joost will have more than 20,000 programs to choose from by the end of February 2008.

Some have complained in the early days of Joost of lack of content. It isn’t so anymore. Joost offer a wide range of programs ranging from Music Video clips, Reality Shows, Full length motion pictures, NHL games, boxing, etc, etc.

Joost is certainly getting closer and closer to a viable, large scale, general public release. Some will certainly find reasons to complain but many will see in Joost a successful entertainment platform.

    Actually, at this rate, Joost will have 100,000 programs to choose from by the end of February 2008, not 20,000. This rate seems sustainable, too, with all of the content deals that haven’t even been utilized yet. (CBS is a major one)

    This is true if you look at it on an exponential scale. But with a linear one 20,000 is still the mark.

    I guess it will be somewhere 20,000 and 100,000.

    Crap. I guess I’m so tired in the mornings that I can’t even bother to find a slope correctly.

    We can always _hope_ that there is 100,000 items of content
